ST THOMAS' CE Primary School in Kendal is seeking planning consent for a multi use games area.

The all-weather pitch at the Kendal Green site would measure 20 by 12 metres, with a two-metre high fence, state the plans submitted to South Lakeland District Council. Kendal Town Council has signalled its approval.

In other Kendal plans, Castle Park Primary School is seeking consent to raise its hall roof by two metres. Meanwhile, Stramongate Primary School is planning a timber shelter over its bicycle racks to help make cycling to school more attractive to its 400 children and 60 staff in poor weather.
